Who We Are

AI technologies are rapidly transforming our world, but there are concerns over how to balance their benefits and potential risks. These include the effect of AI technologies on individual privacy and inequality, as well as whether such technologies will lead to discrimination and new divides.   

 

As countries recover from COVID-19 and we look to the future of technology and innovation, the world will rely on the next generation to help answer the fundamental question: How can AI help us to build a better world? 

 

Organized by the Institute for AI International Governance (I-AIIG) of Tsinghua University, and supported by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), U&AI is an international platform for young talent from around the world. Participants will harness AI technologies to tackle real-world development challenges as they embark on a learning and co-creation journey. 

Why U&AI Stands Out?
